Daring Cardmakers Challenge

This was another of those cards that didn't turn out remotely as I had planned - another one that designed itself. I kept trying to add something else, thinking it was a little bare - but it just wouldn't take anything, no matter how or what I tried. Funnily enough I rather like it.



I used pink and dark grey pearlized card stock. I stamped the image three times in three different shades of pink and cut them out slightly smaller each time. I used foam pads to give the image some depth and finished by enhancing the stamen with black pearls. I stamped various leaves on white bazzill and mounted the image on top. I finished the card with a rub-on sentiment layered on somepink ribbon.




Stamps: Stampendous - Fresh bloom
Ink Boutique - Silhouettes - leaves

Wow, how did you ever get the sentiment to go on the ribbon like you did!!! Looks great. I have such a hard time getting ribbons to work for me.
